A thread for puzzles and riddles.

One foot in front of the other, every day.

The rules:


1. There is only ever one puzzle or riddle active in the thread at one time. 
2. When the puzzle or riddle is solved, the answerer my pose their own brain teaser.
3. The answerer may elect to forgo their turn and give the opening to someone else.


And that's all.


A classic opener: construct four triangles with six matchsticks, and explain how this was done.

    There is a fairly common English word. It is nine letters long. Every time you remove a letter from it, the resulting word is still an English word. What is the original nine-letter word, and what are the eight words that result from removing the letters?
